See the Northern Lights



The northern lights - more properly known as the aurora borealis - occur in the Earth's upper atmosphere near the North Pole. In the Western Hemisphere, the best places to see them are in Alaska, northern Canada and Greenland, but they are occasionally visible much farther south, depending on solar activity. When conditions are favorable, you can see them by finding a place with a clear view of a cloudless sky and looking north.

The aurora frequently appears either as a diffuse glow or as "curtains" that extend approximately in the east-west direction. At some times, they form "quiet arcs" at others ("active aurora"), they evolve and change constantly.

Although it is impossible to predict far in advance when the magic solar winds will appear for each and every light show.
